The Line: Bayern Munich Draw Wolfsburg
Bt Sport; Fox Sport
Two of the top three take each other on Tuesday night with Wolfsburg travelling to the Allianz arena to take on Champions Bayern Munich. Wolfsburg were the team that were closest to Bayern last season and they were also the first team to beat Bayern last season. Bayern Munich have a star studded squad though and the addition of Douglas Costa and Vidal in the summer just added to the already ridiculous strength in depth of Munich. Pep Guardiola has an abundance of riches at his disposal with the ability to rest players at the weekend before this big match up on Tuesday, Muller, Lewandowski didnt start at the weekend and the injuries to Robben and Ribery have hardly been noticed if the truth be told. This Bayern side have so much depth that they could allow German captain Bastian Schweinsteiger to leave for Manchester United during the summer.
Wolfsburg did sell Kevin De Bruyne at the end of the transfer window but they brough in Julian Draxler which was a terrific move, the young German showed potential to be just as good as De Bruyne during his time at Schalke and although he lost most of last season to injury he has started well with Wolfsburg and scored the winner in the Champions League last week. This is a good solid side and Wolfsburg have lots of attacking talent with Dost, Schurrle and former Arsenal forward Nicolas Bendtner. Wolfsburg come into this game without an away win this season though, having dropped points in both of their away fixtures, two draws. Can Wolfsburg up their game here against the Champions?
This should be a really entertaining game of football and while alot of the time meetings between the top sides are cagey affairs I dont see this one being one of them. I am taking the overs here as I think we see a free flowing fun game of football where both attacks will fancy their chances against their opposition defences. Wolfsburg might need an early goal here to settle themselves but the way Bayern play and the pace which Wolfsburg can counter at, that wouldnt be a huge surprise.
